It’s true what they say, irrespective of how cliché, smiles are contagious. Here’s a fun game to prove it.
Next time you fly, make sure you get an emergency exit seat. This will ensure the attendants will give you the safety drill “production,” just to be sure you don’t muck it all up and cause more chaos when the time comes.
Proceed to look the attendant directly in the eye and smile like a fool. Whip out the biggest, goofiest smile you can muster. You are 100% assured of getting at least one real smile back. You may even get a chuckle and a chain reaction from the other folks attending the recital.
